The traditional Queen’s birthday matchup sees Collingwood take on Melbourne from the MCG. This contest is worth a massive 75,000, Collingwood will be looking to bounce back after a disappointing result last week against Fremantle and Melbourne will also be looking to bounce back after their loss up in Darwin.
Jack Crisp @ 8,600 – Once again, I’ll be suggestion Crisp just due to the possibility that he may score well against the Demons if given the opportunity to score well. Would could see a nice 100+ score from Crisp, hopefully.
Michael Hibberd @ 5,700 – With the inclusion of May and Lever back into this side, could that release Hibberd to play more of that ball winning type of game instead of being on one of the forward options for the Pies.
Adam Treloar @ 10,000 – I expect Treloar to bounce back from a very disappointing last half against the dockers and play well today, could easily be the highest scorer in today matchup. I expect him to get plenty of the ball and hopefully plenty of points.
Tom Philips @ 8,600 – Phillips is a player, I always like to have in my team because of the potential that he has, his high games are incredible and can easily when you some of that cash. Has high scores 132 , 126 this season and has hit 140+ in recent seasons
Brayden Sier @5,700 – For someone at this price, if he can do similar numbers to what he putting up in the VFL, we would take that at 5,700
Jordan Roughead @ 4,900 – This is an interesting position in today matchup. The question do you pay up for Grundy (11,400) or Gawn (10,200), I probably wouldn’t pay up for either Grundy or Gawn in this matchup just due to how much they cost and they may counter each other and not score as freely as they have in recent weeks. So i’ll be picking Roughead in hope he can get an 70 for his price and use that extra cash in other positions.
Chris Mayne @ 7,100 – Bit of a recent Moneyball star, scoring really well for the price that he is at and I would expect the same from him in this matchup. averaging 94 in the last 3 weeks and at 7,100 seems like a good option to me
Oskar Baker @ 3,800 – Was good last week scoring a nice 87 against the crows getting 21 disposals and 7 marks. If he can do something similar in this matchup, for a basement type option seems to be the safest.
